Exhibition: David Sandlin and Tajiri Bradley

September 7 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

CAS Arts Center presents the opening of an exhibition with artists David Sandlin and Tajiri Bradley.

David Sandlin:
“I am exploring aspects of American history and legend that still haunt the present, including concepts like manifest destiny and American exceptionalism. My analogs are U.S. presidents and other political leaders, Civil War battles, and tabloid sex scandals. I use images inspired by American country songs, 20th-century comics, and the mock-epic style, using my family as models, and pop-cultural references and puns.”

Tajiri Bradley:
“There is a great amount of cultural significance in African American hair. Studying vintage photographs of slave women brought to America working in the fields, picking Cotten, and tending the fields, it struck me there was a relationship between how they did this work and how they groomed their hair. The hair itself serves as a profound poetic metaphor of their relationship to the earth and the land they were so brutally taken from.”
